Poteet, TX :: Vegetables and fruit year-round
“Plant a good crop, get good money. Plant a mediocre crop, get mediocre money.” That is the creed that Cora Lamar follows on her 170 acre farm located in Poteet (south and east of San Antonio). Blessed with good dirt and water from the Carrizo-Wilcox Aquifer, Cora, husband Bobby, daughter Jessica Cochrane and son Chris raise exceptional crops year-round, most notably strawberries(after all, the farm is in Poteet, strawberry capital of Texas), blackberries, spinach (triple washed for us), homegrown and heirloom tomatoes, squashes, peas, fennel, lettuces, greens, broccoli and much more.
As a point of historical reference, Cora farmed for many years on Manchaca Road in south Austin and delivered to many Austin-area restaurants.
